The comfortable, modern, 3-star NH Las Palmas Playa Las Canteras hotel is in an excellent location in Las Palmas, just a few minutes' walk from the Atlantic Ocean and Las Canteras -- a long stretch of golden sandy beach popular with tourists, surfers and locals alike due to the protection of a natural barrier reef. A 2016 TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Award-winner, Playa Las Canteras is generally considered Spain's best urban beach; it also has a bustling promenade, Paseo de Las Canteras, filled with shops, cafés, snack bars, plentiful open-air tapas and seafood restaurants, and lively street entertainers.
Also within easy 15- to 30-minute walk from the hotel is Puerto de la Luz, one of Spain's most prominent and important ports; the El Muelle Shopping Centre, which features a range of shops, restaurants, bars and leisure activities; and the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium, a huge concert hall with a convention centre. You can also take a Line Blue 60 bus from Santa Cantalina bus station (a 14-minute walk from the hotel, then a 19-minute walk/bus ride to San Telmo bus station, costing 4€, or a 7-minute drive/taxi ride from the hotel, costing 7€-9€) to explore the historic Triana and Vegueta districts. Both offer museums, churches and a range of architectural styles.
The hotel's 67 standard rooms are decorated in calm, muted colours and feature marble-style floors. Most rooms have a small balcony with views of the city and sea (from higher-level floors) or overlooking the pedestrianised Prudencio Morales. All have free Wi-Fi, a TV with satellite channels, a safe and a mini bar. Larger family rooms with three beds are available. A discounted (if booked in advance; otherwise costing 10€) breakfast buffet overlooking the beach is offered via its sister hotel, the NH Imperial Playa, a 1-minute walk from the hotel. The NH Imperial Playa also features a seafront bar with ocean views on the first floor and a restaurant specialising in fish dishes. Public parking is available nearby for 13€-14€ per day. Additional facilities at the NH Las Palmas Playa Las Canteras include a 24-hour reception with currency exchange, an excursions advice desk, a small business centre and a TV room, and fax/photocopying, laundry, dry-cleaning and ironing services.
